BREXIT CASH BOOST
Researchers from three pro-Brexit organisations warn that we will be worse off if we have follow Labour’s plan for a ‘soft’ Brexit
BRITAIN’S poorest families will be £2,288 a year better off thanks to Brexit, a report claims.
Households on poverty line annual incomes of £15,600 will gain £44 week, according to the research.
Grocery bills will fall by £27 a week while rents also tumble as land values drop.
The low-paid will get a £12-a- week wage boost as fewer immigrants compete for jobs.
The poorest will benefit most since they spend a larger slice of earnings on food and housing, according to the estimates.
But the researchers warn they will be worse off than now under Labour’s plans for a “soft” Brexit.
The report was compiled by three pro-Brexit organisations — Economists for Free Trade, Leave Means Leave and Labour Leave.
John Mills, chairman of Labour Leave, said quitting the EU will transform the “sluggish economy”.
He scoffed at those who describe the Brexit date of March 2019 as a “cliff edge”.
Mr Mills said: “It is a springboard to growth and prosperity.”
